Sort alphabetically sounds really handy, can't wait to give it a try. 
Nest by groups would also be nice, but there's that problem of objects 
belonging multiple groups.
Whish there was a sort by 'selectability', 'visibility' and 
'renderability'. It is currently very hard (if not impossible) to make 
all objects in a scene selectable or renderable, since the only 
available operators are toggles, and if one has a mix of selectable and 
non selectable objects it is really hard to make them all selectable 
again, since one can't easily sort them, nor is there a way to make 
force selectability, only toggle and that will also make unselectable 
all previously selectable.
